French Open: Petra Kvitova wins first match following knife attack

Petra Kvitova cried after winning her first match since being stabbed during a burglary at her home in December.

The Czech, 27, looked impressive in beating American Julia Boserup 6-3 6-2 to reach round two of the French Open.


There were fears that the left hand injury suffered in the attack could have ended her career but she battled back to take her place in Paris.

The two-time Wimbledon champion said: “It’s a pleasure to be here and I’m happy I made the decision to play.”
